Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?

I am in the process of buying my 1st home in Chesterfield. Conveyancing lawyer already instructed. The broker suggested that a survey is not needed as the property was only constructed in 2001.
As the bare minimum you need a Home Buyer's Report. As the property is more than ten years old the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report could be sufficient. They will highlight any apparent issues and suggest further investigation where appropriate. Where there are any signs of material issues obtain a comprehensive Building Survey from the beginning.
